You may find this table “Tafel” by Mareanne Bosch quite interesting. Mareanne chiselled an 18th century coffee table by hand into the sleek shape of an industrially manufactured aluminum table. Merging a clean modern archetype and an antique stylized shape, both need one another to continue standing.
